Poem by Robert Burns


Auld Lang Syne


SHOULD auld acquaintance be forgot,
  And never brought to min?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
  And auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear.
  For auld lang syne,
Well tak a cup o kindness yet,
  For auld lang syne.

We twa hae run about the braes,
  And pud the gowans fine;
But weve wanderd mony a weary foot
  Sin auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidled i the burn,
  From morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roard
  Sin auld lang syne.

And theres a hand, my trusty fiere,
  And gies a hand o thine;
And well tak a right guid-willie waught,
  For auld lang syne.

And surely yell be your pint-stowp,
  And surely Ill be mine;
And well tak a cup o kindness yet
  For auld lang syne.
